That's really cute.

I'm delighted yet entirely unsurprised that you loved it. Everybody who's watched it loves it. No exceptions. I've tried to convince so many of my friends to watch it, to little avail. Even people who trust my judgement are skeptical when I claim it's the second best anime I've ever seen.

Well now, I don't think I've ever seen a more negative review about a show. I really  don't think the guy is giving it enough credit. While Shikabane Hime is no Neon genesis evangelion (which was made by gainax as well), cowboy bebop, or ghost in the shell, it was definitely no Bleach, no dragonball z, or in general any sort of shounen show that you can probably name. I'll admit that I gave it a higher score than it objectively deserves because it is a personal favorite (maybe a 4-4.5 would be more appropriate), and I can agree that there was too much fan-service. But just as I enjoyed this show so much, this guy saw some of the faults in SH, and decided to go the opposite direction, trying his best to lambast it and write the most negative review he could possibly summon. At this very moment, I'm rather busy, and I want to take some time to think about the specific points this guy brought up, and write a more detailed response to you. But for now I just want to thank you for taking the time to find a review that somewhat reflects your own viewpoint on the show.

Hey I'm goin' to bed, but I must say that the fifth episode was excellent. It put a lot of things in perspective for me. Did you check out any of my comments to bunny? It's okay if you didn't.

That's a long story. If you really want to know, I'll be talking about it in detail with two other anime-planet folk in maybe two weeks (WARNING: THAT MIGHT TURN OUT TO BE A FEW PAGES LONG). But I really didn't mind the ecchi at all, except for one particular episode at the beginning of the second season. I think they did a fairly good job of balancing the humor (even if it was somewhat low-brow) with the more serious parts. I enjoyed the story, for reasons I will again describe in the future. And I openly admit that in some ways the story WAS generic. In general, I like to describe the show as not being "special" in any particular way, but as being strong in all of them. Honestly you might have had a lot more experience in watching darker shows at the time of your viewing, than at mine. But at the time when I watched this show, it left an impression on me that few others shows have, mainly with regards to the themes the show discusses, and also because I thoroughly enjoyed the artwork in Shikabane Hime. Let it be known that I also watched SH live as it came out, so I had a week between every episode to let each episode percolate in my mind.
